A note about serious food allergies

If your taste buds could dab, this is what they'd do. (Our kids told us to write that. We don't know what it means.) We do know that these tostadas are loaded with flavor and piled with goodness, from a base of creamy guacamole, shrimp flavored with chipotle seasoning, and cooling sour cream on top. A meal this great, you'll want to floss after it. (We don't know what that means, either.) Tip: To remove the core of a tomato, carefully make a circle with your knife around the stem, then remove circle.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 16 oz. shrimp, pat dry and season all over with seasoning blend and a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions as 8 oz. shrimp.

  • If using diced chicken breasts, follow same instruction as shrimp in Step 1. In Step 3, follow same instructions as shrimp, adding chicken to hot pan before onion and poblano, stirring occasionally until chicken starts browning, 3-4 minutes. Add onion and poblano and stir occasionally until vegetables brown and chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 3-5 minutes. Omit Step 4.

  • If using bacon, line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add bacon to hot pan. Flip occasionally until crisp, 6-8 minutes. Transfer to towel-lined plate to remove excess oil. Crumble, and top tostadas with bacon.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into thin strips.

    Core tomato and cut into 1/4" dice.

    Stem poblano pepper, seed, and cut into 1/2" dice. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping.

    Combine tomato, guacamole, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

    Pat shrimp dry, and season all over with seasoning blend.

  2. 2

    Make the Tostadas

    Tostadas are a delicious, but messy treat. For this recipe, they can easily be converted to tacos. Simply warm tortillas in oven for 1-2 minutes after completing steps.

    Poke tortillas with a fork all over, 10 times for each tortilla.

    Place tortillas on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tsp. olive oil and massage oil into tortillas.

    Bake in hot oven until browned and crispy, 5-7 minutes.

    While tortillas bake, start topping.

  3. 3

    Start the Topping

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add onion to hot pan and stir occasionally until beginning to soften, 1-2 minutes.

    Add poblano and stir occasionally until lightly charred and tender, 3-5 minutes.

  4. 4

    Finish the Topping

    Working in batches if necessary, add shrimp and a pinch of pepper to pan.

    Stir occasionally until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-5 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, spreading guacamole on tostadas and topping with topping. Garnish with sour cream and cheese (crumbling with hands if necessary). Bon appétit!
